It would be really awesome if you could have a nice PO Editor in PTVS, something like:

Is this something that could happen in the future?

You can always file a feature request - how soon we'll get to implementing it depends largely on the community demand for it (i.e. how many people vote for it). Of course, we're also always happy to accept code contributions, so that's one way to get something in fast! ;)

Note that you can make it so that double-clicking a .po file in VS Solution Explorer would open POEdit, instead of the default VS text editor. To do so, right-click on the file and select "Open With". If you already have POEdit as the default application associated with this file extension, it should be in the list, so you can choose it and click "Set as Default" on the right to remember that choice for this extension. If there's no default application, then the option will be called "Pick an app" or something along these lines (not sure what it was in Win7), and selecting it will bring up the usual Windows select-an-app dialog where you can make POEdit the default editor.
